Say My Name Lyrics - Beetlejuice

2019 Tony Award Season
Beetlejuice the Musical - Say My Name Lyrics

BETELGEUSE:
You could use a buddy
Don't you want a pal?
(Yes I do! Yes I do!)
Girl, the way I see it
Your daddy should be leavin'
And you should stick around!

(spoken) And kill him!

LYDIA: (spoken)
What?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Nothing

(sung)
So, Lydia, don't end yourself
Defend yourself
Daddy is the one you should maim
Together we'll exterminate, assassinate

LYDIA:
No!

BETELGEUSE:
The finer points can wait
But first you gotta say my name!

Go ahead and jump but that won't stop him
Here you got a solid plan B option
I can bring your daddy so much pain
All you gotta do is say my name!
Girl, just say it three times in a row
Then you won't believe how far I'll go
I'm on the bench, but coach
Just put me in the game
All you gotta do is say my name

LYDIA: (spoken)
I don't know your name

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Well, I can't SAY it

LYDIA: (spoken)
How 'bout a game of charades?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Yes, let's play it

LYDIA: (spoken)
Two words

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Right

LYDIA: (spoken)
Second word

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Uh-huh

LYDIA: (spoken)
Drink?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
No

LYDIA: (spoken)
Beverage?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
No

LYDIA: (spoken)
Wine?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
No

LYDIA: (spoken)
Juice?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Yes!

LYDIA: (spoken)
Okay
First word

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Okay

LYDIA: (spoken)
Bug?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
No

LYDIA: (spoken)
Ant?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Close, but no

LYDIA: (spoken)
Beetle?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Yes!

LYDIA: (spoken)
Betelgeuse?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Wow, I'm impressed
And all you gotta do is say my name three times
Three times in a row it must be spoken
Unbroken
Ready?

LYDIA: (spoken)
Yeah

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Okay, go...

LYDIA: (spoken)
Betelgeuse...

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Yes

LYDIA: (spoken)
Betelgeuse...

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Yes

LYDIA: (spoken)
Beeeeeeeeeeeeee....

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Oh, oh, this is gonna be so good-

LYDIA: (spoken)
-cause

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
What?

LYDIA:
You're so smart
A stand-up bro
I'll think about your offer
Let you know
But I prefer my chances down below
Betelgeuse

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Yes!

LYDIA:
Betelgeuse

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Yes!

LYDIA:
Being young and female doesn't mean that I'm an easy mark
I've been swimming with piranhas
I don't need a shark
Yes, life sucks
But not that much
Ok, Betelgeuse
Betelgeuse
Be a doll and spare the lecture

BETELGEUSE:
I'm offering you a full-time spectre

LYDIA:
Are you any good?

BETELGEUSE:
You bet'cha
Trust me, baby!

LYDIA:
I just met ya
Really it's a flattering offer

BETELGEUSE:
Don't you wanna see Dad suffer?

LYDIA:
I think I'd rather just jump off

BETELGEUSE:
No!

LYDIA:
I may be suicidal
But Betelgeuse, it's not as if I've lost my mind

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
So, playing hardball, huh?
You are tougher than you look

LYDIA: (spoken)
Just wanna make sure I know who I'm working with
Got any references?

BARBARA: (spoken)
Lydia, there you are!

ADAM: (spoken)
Are you alright?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
A-Dog, B-Town, my old pals!

ADAM: (spoken)
Get away from her!
Lydia, this is a dangerously unstable individual

BARBARA:
Betelgeuse is sexy!

ADAM:
Betelgeuse is smart!

BARBARA & ADAM:
BJ is a graduate of Juilliard!
He can help
We found him on Yelp
Our troubles all ended on the day that we befriended him
Every word is the truth
Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse!

BARBARA: (spoken)
What the heck was that?

ADAM: (spoken)
So violating!

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
There you go, kid
Couple of five-star reviews

LYDIA: (spoken)
What was that?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
That was possession
Any ghost can do that in less than one lesson

LYDIA: (spoken)
Any ghost?

BETELGEUSE: (spoken)
Pretty much, any ghost'll do sure

LYDIA: (spoken)
Then, Betelgeuse, what do I need you for?

BETELGEUSE:
Woah, woah, woah woah woah!
Hold up- hold up, girl, I'm your pal
They're sweet, but I'm a demon straight from Hell
I know, I went a little hard on the sell
But we're BF-F-F-F's forever!

BETELGEUSE gets pushed off the roof of the house by LYDIA:
Agh!

ADAM & BARBARA: (spoken)
Lydia!

LYDIA: (spoken)
What? He was already dead
And you heard what he said, any ghost can do that possession stuff

(sung)
We don't need that demon
The three of us alone can wreck dad's evening
Together we can make a grown man weep
Guys, I got a dinner date to keep

ADAM: (spoken)
Okay, so what's the plan?

LYDIA:
Teach dad a lesson
He's gonna freak when we possess him
So he wants the perfect daughter
I'll lead that lamb to slaughter
Yeah, I got game!
I'm gonna make him say my name

ADAM & BARBARA:
Make him say your name

LYDIA:
I'll make him say my name

ADAM & BARBARA:
Make him say your name

LYDIA:
I'll make him say my name

ADAM & BARBARA:
Make him say your name

LYDIA:
Not running away!
I'll make him say my name!
